A pitch pan is a flanged, open-bottom, metal container that wraps around roof penetrations. They are then filled with mastic material to provide a water-tight seal. In other words, a pitch pan is a retrofit roof flashing kit. Also known as a pitch pocket, they function as a container to hold fluid sealant to seal all roof penetrations. They effectively secure odd-shaped penetrations to prevent leaks. Some of these roof penetrations may include electrical conduits, I-beam supports, or plumbing.
The PP-8x18-H3 is an 8 inch by 18 inch rectangular box with 3 inches in height and has a 13 inch by 23 inch flange. This pitch pan is perfect for covering up any openings in the roof. However, if you need a different size, we offer an array of sizes.
Open pitch pans – pitch pockets are used to flash roof penetrations that would be difficult to flash in any other way. They have been designed to work with all roof types such as TPO, PVC, and EPDM. Pitch pans are also compatible with all HVAC systems to ensure a leak-proof seal. AVP’s pitch pocket waterproofing design will prevent leaks near the roof penetration.
